To be honest, Belgium was never under the spotlight of my travel radar. My brief visit included the Comic Book Route, the Grand Place, Manneken Pis, waffles, chocolates, and lots of heritage sites – and I had a new found interest of Belgium!
One Sigiriya, three perspectives. Admiring the famous Lion Rock from Pidurangala, the ancient city’s Water Gardens, and the rock summit.
Standing on 3,800 meter above sea level in Cusco, Peru. Admiring Inca heritage sites, Spanish-style cathedrals and Peruvian food – while beating the altitude sickness.
It’s been some time that I visit the riverside of Bangkok. In fact, there are some new landmarks and markets popping up along the river, in between some of the Bangkok historic classics. We re-visited the Grand Palace, Wat Pho, and Wat Arun, had a great time shopping and fine-dining experience in a day!
We visited Madrid during Easter. Beyond the yummylicious food, The Golden Triangle of Art, we stroll through the historic center, soaking in the Spanish royalty, culture, and history.

Helsinki’s city center is compact and easy to navigate, while tourists could basically go anywhere on foot. Here is a 2-day easy going itinerary of the major attractions in Finland’s Daughter of the Baltic.
Myanmar is not exactly a travel hotspot in the Southeast Asia like the neighboring Thailand, Malaysia or Singapore. It, however, retains a strong culture and history that looks novel to me as I was there. If you are a fan of Cultural travel, there is something you would enjoy immensely – not just to see, but also feel, taste, and experience.
Last time when I was in town (again), I finally visited Versailles, and I found it was an art pilgrimage long overdue. This is all about why, when, how, and what not to miss visiting the palace and gardens of Versailles, France.
